The name of this friendly breed alludes to its origin. Border means “limit, border, edge” and that is where it came from, between the border of England and Scotland given the need to get a dog suitable for field work and at the same time obedient.
What to expect from a Border Collie
This breed is one of the most intelligent there is: it is a fast learner and has a high reasoning capacity, so it is a very efficient dog for people who use it in the field or in livestock farming. He does not usually use barking when working and does not need constant supervision by a master. On the other hand, it is a good companion dog, as it adapts to other animals and to its owners. It is very faithful.
Border Collie Care
However, he finds it difficult to live in an apartment. If the caregiver does not have a lot of time to devote to the dog, it is better to choose another breed that needs less stimulation or exercise. This one requires it. In addition to the daily activity, the coat should be brushed, especially when it is changing.
